The Crocus Bloomed!

Yesterday, while Little Sprout and I were at Dad's place, the crocus bloomed. I think this is the first year we have had the crocus bloom, which is odd, because the tulips and daffodils always have. Hmmm...

It was beautiful. I mean really, really beautiful.

Little Sprout was so excited, I thought she was going to bust right out of her skin! I took pictures, being the geek I am, but I can't seem to get them from the camera to the 'puter right now, so you are just going to have to imagine those lovely little purple flowers.

I also saw two robins doing the Spring Dance. It was kinda funny. Mr. Robin was all "hey, baby... ya wanna make some eggs?" Mrs. Robin evidently wasn't into it, or had a headache, or something. She was totally NOT interested in letting Mr. Robin have his way, no matter how hard he tried. I'm pretty sure Mr. Robin is going to have the last laugh, though, and that there will be a nest with pretty blue eggs in it soon. That's just the way things go in the spring, ya know? I am proud of her for making him work for it, though. The males of every species need to know the value of what they are getting....


~and that's all I have to say about that~

Congrats on those first two signs that spring will come soon to the frozen northern states. While we have moved on to the first azaleas this week, it has been a long haul. Hopefully, your spring will come faster and last longer.
